BSO: The Importance Of The Resurrection

Written By: Steve Shirley

*For Answer Key To Fill In The Blanks Go: Here

     Why is the Resurrection so important? Let’s begin by turning to two sections of Scripture.

(1 Cor 15:12-19)

(Rom 10:9-10)

 

     The Resurrection forever changed the lives of the apostles and mankind. Why? Let’s look at 10 reasons.

#1. (Acts 2:24):

 

#2. (Jn 14:19)(1 Cor 6:14)(Rom 8:11)(Phil 3:21)(1 Cor 15:20):

 

#3. (Rom 8:34)(Heb 7:25)(Heb 9:24)(1 Jn 2:1)(Isa 53:12):

 

#4. Jesus prophesied His resurrection at least 15 times before He died.
Mt 16:21, 17:9, 17:22-23, 20:18-19, 26:32
Mk 8:31, 9:9, 9:31, 10:34, 14:28
Lk 9:22, 18:33
Jn 2:18-22, 10:17-18, 16:16-22

Why is this important?

 

#5. (Rom 1:4):

 

#6. (Isa 26:19)(Dan 12:2)(Ps 16:10):

 

#7. (Rom 4:25):

 

#8. (Acts 17:31):

 

#9. We also have a promise that one day we will get a new body that will never die, will be without sickness or disease, free from sin, glorious, powerful, and spiritual.

     These truths turned the apostles from timidness to boldness, from dejected to elated; and many of them were martyred, no longer fearing death. The Resurrection of Jesus became a cornerstone of their preaching and converting the lost. The Book of Acts alone has numerous verses concerning the Resurrection. (See: Acts 1:22-23, 2:23-24,31-32, 3:15-16,26, 4:10, 5:30, 10:39-41, 13:29-39, 17:30-31, 26:22-23)

     Jesus arose from the dead on the first day of the week: (Mt 28:1)(Mk 19:2,9)(Lk 24:1)(Jn 20:1). To commemorate this, both the Bible and history show us that the day of worshipping the Lord changed from the Sabbath day to the Lord’s Day: (Lord’s Day: Rev 1:10)(1 Cor 16:1-2)(Acts 20:7).

     The Resurrection offers proof for the trinity! Question: Who raised Jesus from the dead?
